Hormone Therapy Q & A

What can hormone therapy treat?

Hormone therapy, or hormone replacement therapy (HRT), is an effective way to restore your hormone levels if you’re going through perimenopause or menopause, or if you have hormonal fluctuations for other reasons. Your customized hormone therapy plan is beneficial for minimizing the severity of:

  • Hot flashes
  • Weight changes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Bladder leakage 
  • Concentration issues
  • Anxiety or mood swings

Hormone therapy can even help you get your libido back and resolve issues with pain during sexual intercourse. 

Which type of hormone therapy do I need?

Contemporary Women's Care provides a wide variety of hormone therapy solutions. Your OB/GYN runs labs to evaluate your hormone levels and talks with you about your symptoms to determine which type of HRT may be most effective for you. 

Hormone therapy comes in many formularies, so your doctor may recommend:

  • BioTE® bioidentical pellets
  • Vaginal suppositories 
  • Topical estrogen creams
  • Oral medications
  • Vaginal rings 
  • Skin patches

Your hormone therapy plan from Contemporary Women's Care is adjusted as needed throughout the course of your treatment. 

When does hormone therapy start working?

Most types of hormone therapy start working quickly. You may notice an improvement in your symptoms in as little as a few days. With each passing week as your hormones continue to stabilize, your symptoms should keep fading away.

Your OB/GYN may have you come back to Contemporary Women's Care after a couple of months to reevaluate your hormone levels. She can change your dosage or formulary if you continue to experience hormone-related issues.

How long do I need hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy is designed to be used for just a few years. Most women experience the lasting relief they need within the first 1-3 years. 

Because hormone therapy can increase your risk of health issues if you use it for more than five consecutive years, your OB/GYN at Contemporary Women's Care gradually tapers your treatment down over time.
